I would double check the thickness of the power cord. 18AWG sounds too thin to me. for that sub.

That's definitely what the cord has printed on it.

Then any 18AWG white cord will do.

Got SB13U #2 connected and set up earlier this afternoon.....

Much improved over just one sub! Didn't do anything in much depth, just level calibrated and re-ran ARC on my Anthem pre-pro. I've got such a bad room with super-limited placement options, I just didn't know how the space would handle a second sub. Although it's not perfect, it has really made a difference in, what I at least PERCEIVE as a smoother overall response (maybe better integration is more correct?) - the entire system just seems to blend much better now - whereas before it was possible, depending on what was going on, to localize the 1st sub when it was all by itself.

Before, bass sounded better at the left and right seating positions of a 3-person couch. NOW it sounds best at the MLP, but still sounds good at the other two positions, more even, not quite as much ooommpphh as the center position on the couch. But it actually sounds THE BEST standing behind the couch. HA, go figure.

I had to park the subs on either side of the room, and they are not equidistant, so I just averaged the distances for the distance setting in the pre-pro. Don't know if I should attempt to mess around with phase settings, or anything else for that matter. It sounds good, I'm sure it could sound better. The only thing I can do though is mess with the more technical features of the subs - placement is a non-factor - they have to be where they are (and it is not optimal, I know that, but I've got no choice in current situation) so trying to improve things with better placement is off the table. Got a nice-sized dip around 50HZ, which is bigger with the two together compared to just running one or the other, so they both suffer from this. Gotta be a placement thing!

Even so, quite pleased with the preliminary results. Anybody out there wondering if they should try a second sub, DO IT.

Any advice on possible ways to improve, gladly accepted!

I have 2 PC12+ that I just picked up a couple days ago. Still only running one (in place of an old Klipsch I had been using), but should have the second one running in a few days.

Nice. Can't wait to get duals running. My wife gave me the go ahead to put another in our living room. Used the "I have an idea for Father's Day" tactic. Just waiting to talk to SVS about getting the dual sub and return customer discount. Just ordered a Denon x4300 to go with it and get better Audyssey and independent sub outs. Wil make it easier to run my second pc12+ wireless. Next plan to add Atmos speakers. Then eventually when oled prices come down get a new tv. So the long term plan is starting to come together. Yay. Just under a year ago I was using mostly HTIB speakers and the dinky 8" sub it came with that did nothing.

I'm not sure why you'd want to go below 80 Hz on a center channel anyway - not much low frequency content on that channel that would need localizing.
I posted this question out of curiosity because that article can be misleading to someone. Btw, I am not looking for a center; it was just my curiosity kicking in when I read that article.

I highly doubt that article is geared toward something like that and is referring to your typical center channel speakers.

I stick to the usual center channel. Most speaker lineups have 2 or 3 center channels. A good center will never give you any issues. I've never had any complaints to think about using a tower as my center.

Sounds like we have somewhat similar plans. I ran out of equipment space and a vertical rack won't mesh in my room, so my new, under-TV stand with more shelf space arrived yesterday and I got it mostly assembled. Tonight when I get home from work it'll be time to remove everything, put the new stand in it's place, and fill it back up; including the new power conditioner that the 2nd sub will run on So I should have my dual PC12'+'s running maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow.

I'll run it for about 2 weeks once I have the dual subs going, to get used to it. Then I'll install the Prime Elevations I'm using for Atmos, feeding off a used Rotel RMB-1075 I purchased.

I plan to (finally) purchase a 4K TV at about this time next year. TV tech is still moving too fast, I think another year will see all the features I want, and at the price I want

We don't carry chassis amps, so we don't recommend using our Sledge plate amps for passive legacy SVS subwoofers.

I'll typically recommend Crown or QSC for a passive CS subwoofer. Adding a miniDSP 2x4 with the Advanced plug-in software module will allow the user to enable PEQs and high/low pass filters to improve the frequency response and help protect the woofer below tuning.

I am looking for a new amp to drive one of my 20-39 CS plus subs. The owners manual states 350 watt continuous and 600 watts peak. What do folks think about an Outlaw amp rated at 300 watts continuous? https://www.outlawaudio.com/products/2200.html

Does the Outlaw look good or other suggestions for an amp with balanced inputs and preferably auto signal sensing power?

Basshead. Thanks for the heads up. I already purchased the Outlaw mono block and it is perfect for my application. Unfortunately, I couldn't resist the Change amp so I ordered one as a backup. It appears to be a monster, especially for the price. Parts alone exceed what they are selling it for. Doesn't have auto on. but I was able to get a 220V version.

Would this amp be a good match with Polk LSiM707 speakers? Or is this only good for subwoofers?

Nvm: I see it states that it's perfect for subwoofer applications.

Thanks
